DWQA QuestionsCategory: Physical UniverseWas physicist David Bohm correctly seeing the workings of quantum physics through his model he described in the book, Wholeness and the Implicate Order, as being the interplay between “Implicate Order” and “Explicate Order,” or is there a better explanation?

He has done much, as you are aware, to benefit understanding by the average person of the complex quantum phenomena governing the universe at all levels. This work is no exception. His description relies on these terms, which are a kind of jargon, but it must be called something, and in the absence of knowing its true origin, in keeping with scientific practice, the discoverer gets to name the phenomenon involved, much as perceiving for the first time the unique circumstance represented by a cluster of common symptoms will be given the name of its discoverer as a new official disease label. The same is true of discoveries in physics about various phenomena. Although other governing bodies weigh in, there is due consideration given to the proponent who pioneered work to gain understanding in a deeper way of what is taking place in the natural realm. In this case, however, as you have already perceived and think of in terms of this interplay, the “implicate” order is simply consciousness and the “explicate” order is the consequence displayed through the ordering of energy to create that which is visible and perceptible through other senses, as well as technological sensing devices. You will find the book quite interesting and provocative and it can help your thinking, as well, to further integrate his insights with what you have come to understand and believe about the role of consciousness in the universe. So this would be worth your time to study.
